Build ffmpegthumbnailer lib to work with Heroku

In Progress

Heroku hackers and UNIX geeks, here's a small job to make some quick money!


I'm hosting a web app on In a ruby background job I'm using ffmpegthumbnailer to generate a thumbnail of a video, with the command:

`ffmpegthumbnailer -i "#{video_url}" -o #{local_storage_path} -s 0 -t 10 -q 10`

This works locally on Mac OSX, but I don't have a build for Heroku's cedar platform (AMD64 as far as I know).


1. Build the ffmpegthumbnailer lib (perhaps using Heroku Vulcan - [url removed, login to view])

2. Create an empty rails app and vendor the lib(s)

3. Deploy to heroku and confirm that the lib is working:

$ heroku run console

irb(main):001:0> `ffmpegthumbnailer`

You'll win the project if you can provide a screen shot of the output. Alternatively, I'll also happily pay for an open-source repository on Github with a working procedure.


1. Screen shot of working command from Heroku console

2. Simple documentation of how to build and vendor lib(s)

3. Lib(s) to be vendored
